Speaking at the opening ceremony, Isara Burintramart, managing director of the organiser Reed Tradex, said: “Over the past decades, Metalex Vietnam and NEPCON Vietnam have become ideal platforms for industrialists to catch up with ever-evolving innovations and knowledge in the field of metalworking and electronics.
“This year’s Metalex Vietnam will set the stage for 10,000 buyers to source the latest machine tools and metalworking solutions from 500 brands from 25 countries.”
Nepcon Vietnam 2018, an exhibition on SMT, testing technologies, equipment and supporting industries for electronics manufacturing, will give electronics producers a chance to explore advanced technologies from over 200 technology providers from 20 countries, acquire know-how in seminars, and expand business networks via business matchmaking and networking functions.
The Supporting Industry Show 2018, organised by Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) in coordination with the HCM City Centre of Supporting Industries Development (CSID), the Investment and Trade Promotion Centre of HCM City, will offer opportunities for Japanese and Vietnamese companies across the supporting industry to secure partnerships and subcontracts to shape their business strategies.
Takimoto Koji, chief representative of JETRO HCM City, said: “At our Supporting Industry Show, the exhibitors are not only Vietnamese suppliers that want to sell but also Japanese buyers that want to buy. This is the significant feature of this exhibition.
“As buyers, there are 29 Japanese manufactures, and 18 of them are name-brand manufactures. During the exhibition, the Japanese buyers show products and parts that they want to purchase. So we hope many visitors can find out what buyers want and what they can provide.”
